Monday Meet and Greet the Members of the Pacific Postcards Team - Retro Vintage Bazaar

This is a blog posting that introduces a different shop member of the Pacific Postcards Team (PPT) each week.  The PPT is a great group of people that either have a shop full of postcards (old and new) or incorporates the beautiful vintage images into their artwork and handmade items.  We also have several members that simply love postcards and ephemera. 

Today’s featured member is Andrea Vogal owner of shop RetroVintageBazaar.  Her wonderful shop is filled to the brim with lovely vintage items including over 200 postcards and greeting cards ranging in age from the early 1900’s to later vintage.  She also has a large collection of photographs, Stereoviews, books, records, household, and so much more!

 From Andrea’s Profile:
Lover of all things unique. I enjoy going to flea markets, thrift shops, and yard sales. There is nothing like finding something at the bottom of an ugly pile of junk..cleaning it up and finding a wonderful treasure!

Taking old abused, misunderstood, neglected items and turning them into something new and wonderful..

I grew up around antiques and collectibles. Even as a child I loved old things. Over the years I have collected some amazing things. Many of which have come to me by way of friend and family.

These days, Hubby and I spend our extra time together going to auctions, flea markets, yard sales, and we love picking through boxes to find a treasure in the rough.

I hope that you find something interesting that speaks to you and make it yours. “

Tophatter is an Online Auction House that has the sophistication of any Auction House you could physically attend.  They have a head auctioneer named Sir Wendell.  You have an Avatar so that you can virtually join in the bidding and selling process and can attend auctions just as if you were really standing there.  They have a catalog of their upcoming auctions that you can view ahead of time.  So essentially you will have almost the same experience as going to an actual Auction House.  What a fun way to get into the piece of the action!
